A great rocking show from a beatiful old theatre in Paris, le Divan du Monde, once the stomping ground of poet Charles Beaudelaire.
The audience was international. People had come from all places to see this show: we had come over from the Netherlands, but we also met fans from Belgium and Germany, some making it a weekend in Paris. Also a few Americans who happened to be in Paris were in the audience. All in all a good atmosphere with a well behaved and enthusiastic crowd.
After Chelsea Hotel '78 Alejandro suggested Part People, but somebody in the audience called out for Big Station.
Alejandro agreed and asked the caller to join him on stage. That turned out to be Marc, who had come over from the south of France for this show. Marc has his own band, which explained the confidence he had on stage.
